the way most small businesses work in america. >> reporter: i mentioned president obama is going out on the trail, if you will in pennsylvania to sell his arguments. one would expect we would hear some sort of response from speaker john boehner after that. jon. jon: what are the democrats saying? i mean about these g.o.p. complaints? what is your response? >> reporter: they are saying republicans if you don't like the president's plan, where is your own plan? they are asking for specifics on revenue in terms of tax revenue. they are also asking for specifics on what republicans want to do to entitlements. house democratic leader nancy pelosi is not talking about more spending cuts. >> the president has been clear and we support him on holding firm to the 250 tax cuts -- expiration of tax cuts for people making over $250,000 a year. that would be part of a big, bold and balanced package that has big cuts. we've already voted for over a trillion dollars in cuts. revenues are needed and job creation is essential to reducing the deficit. >> reporter: now one weapon that the administratio
